12 fl oz bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. Pours pitch black with diminished tan head. Dense cherry aroma with roasted malt. Smooth vanilla note too. Dense malty flavoured with a acidic cherry flavour and light sourish citric note. Vanilla flavour to the quickly declining cherry base flavour. Goes into a smooth and more subdued cherry finish. Slight mead like. Stunning aroma, less impressive in the flavour. Ungstrup (38383) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of cherries, wood, and alcohol - like a cherry liquor. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt, wood, and cherries, leading to a bone dry kriek-like finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing. anders37 (26999) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2010

What a great candidate for barrel aging. Dark brown, 3 bubble head, scant lacing. Aroma of brandied/candied chocolate covered cherries. Taste is similar with a nice sourness. A winner.

Opaque black stout. Smooth start to the palate but there is a trailing carbonated bite. A complex brew! Maraschino cherry, vanilla oak, a little bourbon and sourish chocolate. All well joined up. Overall a sweet tasting beer with many different aspects.
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of fiver29. Pours completely opaque black with a light brown head. Intriguing and intense bourbon aroma with some alcohol shining through. Medium body, the roasted malt accents are surprisingly subdued but the beer is dominated by a distinct sourness. The cherry notes turn up late but are strong and distinct and also add almond and coconut accents. No real bitterness but an acidic finish. Unique. 051008 mcberko (18949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2012
12 oz. bottle of unknown age (probably a few years old), generously bonus’d by northernbrews (thanks a lot, Jeff). Pours black with a reddish tinge and a small beige head. Aroma brings out the cherry on top, boozified by the bourbon barrels, with notes of oak and liqueur - basically like a sweet cherry liqueur. Flavour is a fair bit tart due to the cherries, with some mild bourbon coming through, but is almost completely outdone by the tart cherry juice. There is no booze to be detected - perhaps age has concealed it. Medium-bodied, with the tartness becoming more and more prominent with each successive sip. Not sure a whole 12 oz. bottle of this is warranted for one person drinking it - would’ve rather split it. Anyway, not really my type of stout due to the sourness (not a good combination to me).

B8K. Near black. Thick, woody nose with light cherry....almost mead-like. Cherry, chocolate, some barrel notes on the palate. Big body. Candyish, though, the way the cherry comes across. It’s a little bit crazy, unfocused. Really doesn’t come together - the elements seem to contrast rather than complement.
